Conspicuous by absence

The not aspected planet and the element without placements are more just as important as the person who is conspicuous by absence. 

The missing link in the chart as an important clue


Harry Potter was written by J.K. Rowling. She has no aspects at all with the planet of communications, Mercury (apart from a very wide conjunction with Venus). How that works in her private life, I do not know. For writing and concentration you need silence and possible your contacts suffer when you are facing a deadline. But the fact she became an author is remarkable, giving this NA (Not Aspected) Mercury.
Jeanne d’Arc did not have planets in the element fire. Yet she became a warrior. And she died by fire. Oprah Winfrey has no planets in the element earth (the material element) and started very poor. Still she became one of the richest women in the world! Hillary Clinton also lacks earth signs and the Sun is only making one aspect: a quintile with Saturn. Rich Donald Trump has no placements in earth. Liz Greene has no planets in water signs but she occupies herself with the psychological side of astrology. Theo van Gogh –Dutch director - had no planets in water and was killed by Mohammed B, who has 60% of his planets in water signs. Michael Palin amuses people with his stories about travelling with anunaspected Venus in Gemini (an indication for the love of telling stories). Evita Perron did not have major aspects with Neptune and became a legend.

You see my point…That what your chart does not have is that what you seem to be looking for in life if it has not already found you…So find the missing link in your chart and see how to use it. No air, but maybe good aspects with Mercury or Venus? Like Mary J. Blige who communicates perfectly by means of her musical talent. Those who miss fire in their charts might look for the position and aspects of Mars or Jupiter. If you have a NA Mars, find the planet in Aries or Scorpio or look for another symbol of fire (like the Sun).

When you come on earth with a desire for material security because there is no such a basic security for youyou are eager to find it. Donald Trump used his Saturn, ruler sixth house of working and the conjunction with Venus (ruler of the tenth house of career) to make it in the world outside using his talent for knowing what is worthwhile. Oprah’s square between Venus and Saturn did the same. Donald and Oprah have no earth. Theo van Gogh had no water, but his chart has Sun square Neptune (a water sign ruler) andNeptune is the symbol of movies. You see people somehow compensate for the lacking element in their natal chart.

Some interpretations...

- No aspects with:
Sun = seeking for creativity, leadership and fame, health is important
Moon= seeking consistency in habits, a family, emotions
Mercury = seeking for contacts and ways for communication
Venus = seeking for love, kindness and sympathy
Mars = seeking for activities, work
Jupiter = seeking for a conviction or religion.Wants development.
Saturn = seeking for stability and security, status
Uranus = seeking for sensation, new items
Neptune = seeking mystic, romance, rest
Pluto = seeking challenges and influence

- Missing elements:

Fire = looking for possibilities to express aggression and feel vital
Earth = looking for possibilities to collect material and feel secure
Air = looking for social contacts and exchange of ideas
Water = looking for emotions and the feeling to ‘belong’

Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

For examples of the importance of the planet (or Sun or Moon) without aspects within 5 degrees of orb (or in sign), see the label ' calling planet'.

Would you consider the inclusion of outer planets, Asc & Mc in the element analysis?

Hi R.,
I include outer planets. I don't include AC and MC in the element analysis. (But I do include the fact that Ascendant or Midheaven is without aspects).
